that was headed for lib non, which they say could have been an attempted transfer weapons to hezbollah. group that the united states government consider aster rorrist organization. theoretically, missileles would give hezbollah ability to shoot down israeli jets and helicopters and drones. syria on the other hand claims the israelis hit some kind of military research lab. so far the israelis haven't said a thing as is par for the course. i'm ran is in the mix here. syria and iran are close allies. last week, they said any attack on syria is an attack on them. with that the fox correspondent john hunt is here. if someone moving the missiles why now? >> given israel threat to act if the weapons were moved in past weeks and months it's unlikely the decision was taken lightly. according to experts like andrew taylor in the washington institute it may be a sign that the syrian regime and the allies are becoming increasingly concerned that the rebels might be able to overrun those facilities and get the hands on those weapons. listen. >> it could very well be they did not want weapons to fall in ha
to hezbollah in lebanon. sara sidener joins us as well as fran townsend from new york. we have reports from the united states and reports from syria. is this the same or separate attacks? >> reporter: that's the thing that needed to be sorted today. we have heard from a u.s. official indeed there was just one attack. they say israeli planes did fly over and ended up hitting an area. the question is -- what is the difference? was it a convoy that was hit that had pieces and parts of missiles or was it this research facility that syria says the israelis hit that was damaged? there is confusion over what was hit or perhaps if it was one and the same incident. what we know from senior intelligence officials who have now left the intelligence agencies here in israel and we have talked to a few of them is that this particular research facility has been a facility that they know has been part of a chain of facilities that syria runs that have been trying to create unconventional weaponry. we are talking chemical weapons. however we are told this particular facility didn't have chemical weapons in

missiles that were apparently being sent on trucks to the military group hezbollah in lebanon. the attack appears to confirm fears that the chaotic civil war has left that country's supply of sophisticated weapons vulnerable. russia called israel's attack unacceptable. >>> and defense secretary nominee chuck hagel sure to face tough questions during his first day of confirmation in the senate. he is not specifically pro-israel and wouldn't be tough enough on iran. >>> and a developing story in arizona. a man wanted for opening fire inside a phoenix office building, killing a ceo in the process, is on the run at this hour. police say 70-year-old arthur harmon shot the top executive of a call center agency that he was suing. two others were wounded. harmon fled in a white rental car. police say he is armed and dangerous. >>> and this morning, walmart has announced it will begin limiting sales of ammunition to three boxes per day per customer. new worries about gun control laws have led to a run on ammunition. and walmart says that it simply cannot keep up with the demand. >>> and there's ne
to be moving weapons to hezbollah in lebanon. syria disputed the account, saying that israel targeted a research facility near damascus. >>> massachusetts governor, duval patrick, named william mo cowan as his chief of staff to replace john kerry. and coming to a post office near you, johnny cash, the u.s. postal service is honoring the legendary singer in its new legendary icon release of stamps. >> that's cool. >> apparently the u.s. postal service gets about 40,000 suggestions for stamps each year, they narrowed it down to 20, and johnny cash won it. >> all right. randy, thank you very much. the baltimore ravens ray lewis will play his last nfl game ever on super bowl sunday. seems headed for the hall of fame. but in the past, he was on trial for double murder. and one of his co-defendants wrote a book. >>> and just when you thought the manti te'o story couldn't get more involved, it has. dr. phil mcgraw says the california man who was behind the hoax fell in love with te'o while pretending to be his girlfriend. you know i relieve coug >>> and extreme sports under scrutiny after da
hezbollah could get their hands on them. the building where the trucks were loading or departing was hit. hezbollah is a sworn enemy of israel. if hezbollah had gotten those missiles it would have significantly increased their capability in any future conflict with israel. this was not israel getting involved in the conflict in syria, per se. it was very much israel making a preemptive strike to protect itself. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> i think that's important because early reports sort of were, were suggesting that perhaps i had real was getting involved in the inner workings of the syrian war. that, now we know, is not necessarily the case. >> nobody wants to touch that. but in terms of getting too deeply involved. even the u.s. has been very kind of wary about how deeply they're going to get involved in this. the real issue, if assad loses control and those weapons he has get into the wrong hand that's when the situation turns much more grave, much more serious, potentially volatile and that could be the turning point that would draw the u.s. more deeply into syria if
